The morning will begin with a seed-collecting walk in the International and Shade Gardens followed by a session on seed cleaning and storage. A hands-on indoor session will emphasize techniques for propagating native wildflowers and shrubs by seed. Models for inexpensive grow-light systems as well as a propagation timeline will be provided to ensure that your seedlings are ready to be transplanted outdoors in early spring. Participants will leave with several types of seed to propagate at home.
